30 Second Summaries – Hollywood Edition

In today's busy world, the attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. In the world of information superhighways and consequent information overloads, people don't have time to read long pages and pages of reviews of the movies they want to watch, when they can just as well spend that time doing something else.

Now, thanks to The Aerie Institute, you don’t have to worry about losing the thread of the post you were reading just because your boss popped in for a “discussion”. Or you don’t have to choose between a long (but interesting) movie review and that floor-mate you want to talk to so much, who just walked over to the coffee machine.

Presenting 30 Second Summaries – Hollywood (Prequels) Edition:

X-Men Origins Wolverine X-Men Origins: Wolverine:

A tale of sibling rivalry: one has slight personal hygiene issues, other needs to visit his orthopaedist pronto.

And when is The Government going to realise that in any black-ops team, one is going to go rogue (no, not that Rogue), one (mostly rogue’s closest friend/brother) is going to go on “straight and narrow”, and the others are going to get killed, before the good prevails over the evil.


Star Trek:

Going boldly where no sci-fi film has gone before: 2 Spocks.




angelsanddemons Angels and Demons: (full review here)

On his first visit to Vatican’s Secret Archives, Prof. Robert Langdon tears up a book. On the second visit, he damages (and possibly destroys) a lot more books. To keep something for his third visit (and probably out of professional jealousy), he helps the Church stop a secret society from destroying Vatican.

Oh, and (Spoiler Alert): The Butler did it.

Coming up:

T4 Terminator: Salvation:

Holy cyborg, Batman!

Spolier Alert: Since the terminators now look (and act) completely human, here’s a tip how you can catch one. Grab a digital photo of the suspect with flash on. If his eyes turn red in the photograph, run and/or kill him.



Till next time… go on, she is still stirring some sugar in her coffee.

@Rayshma: Personally, I think X-Men is more supercharged teen angst than superheroes. Spidey got over it pretty well, or at least tries to get over it.

And you like Bale more in mask than without one, huh? ;)
